Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Gawd, Could I Be Any Geekier?

For Mute Monday, go one post down.

Labor Day weekend my BIL and his wife informed us that their two-year-old daughter was already a major Star Wars geek. Normal people would react to this by saying "Okie dokie, whatever" and walking away backwards and slowly from the strange parents. Spousehole and I: totally jealous. Our kids haven't been as into Star Wars as we would like, despite frequent viewings of Eps 1-6. They like ST:TNG and original Star Trek, but not so much Star Wars. The Girl likes ewoks, that's about it. Boy likes R2, but c'mon, doesn't everybody?

Star Wars Horoscope for Virgo

You show efficiency when working for a good
But you tend to be a bit fussy when it comes to doing something out of the ordinary.
Like many Virgos, you want to stay out of the spotlight.
You do well at picking up the smallest details.

Star wars character you are most like: C3P0

Our kids are huge into Wallace & Gromit, though, so I suppose they have some geek cred. Boy likes Thomas the Tank Engine, but that's pretty much a requirement for autistic kids. Both kids really like Porco Rosso, an anime flick. (See my Porco Rosso description here.) So I suppose they are geeks-in-training. Perhaps the force will be with them one day soon.

Now they got their asses handed to them by Oregon State! I know I should be kinder to a fellow Big 10 school, but gee whiz ~ they just keep bringing the suckitude!

I'm a huge Star Wars geek myself, but decided not to have my kids watch until they're older -- it's kinda scary by their standards. But I'll be astounded if they don't love it. I will tell them to fake that they love it, if necessary, and that if either of 'em had been a boy, she'd have been named Luke.


In the meantime, we are ALL about Thomas the Tank Engine. Sigh.

Ah well, Bunny, at least the force is with you ! Sometimes kids don't "get" it until they are older....

Hope that you have a good week ahead !

I thought I could stop posting, but I can't... Hormones got the best of me, I'm afraid... Somehow, I didn't think you'd mind... :)

My kids went/are going through thomas too. (I think I alluded to previous "percy's been put upon" song running continuously through my head). Norm has also had a star wars phase although most of it scares the holy hell out of him! Im off to check my horoscope!

Damn I'm a virgo too!?
Surely I'm closer to the strong powerful Chewbacca or the dashing Hans Solo!
